Luxembourg, tradition and modernity


The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a crossroads of some 170 nationalities. Multinationals and European institutions make it one of the beating hearts of the continent. From the fortified summits of the old town to the high-rising towers of Kirchberg, the capital’s skyline alternates between tradition and modernity. Its economic, political and social stability, its prolific financial activity, its dukely heritage, its cultural scene and its high-end restaurants and boutiques all come together to give the city its unique charm. This urban melting pot is also an exclusive gateway to the country’s verdant cantons: cycling in the valleys of the Ardennes, exploring vineyards in the Moselle region, and hiking in the Guttland. A one-of-a-kind destination. 

The real estate market : A steady increase

Prices have steadily increased over the last 25 years (+4.5% on average) with an acceleration since 2019. Today they have reached an average of €11,523 per sq.m in Luxembourg City (city centre and 24 surrounding districts) with notable differences depending on location.  Outside the city centre, Kirchberg business district, residential and luxurious Belair, and the green plateau of Limpertsberg are in high demand. Houses reach peak prices here (over €2 million across the municipality as a whole).

Our advice

You don’t need to move to the city centre to make the most of its advantages as it is easily accessible from all the surrounding districts.

Why not opt for 100 sq.m (1,076 sq ft) in Belair? Properties in this peaceful neighbourhood are a sound investment.


Reconstruction works are under way in the less popular areas of Hollerich, with a vast array of cultural activities, and around the train station, filled with Haussmannian buildings. Great deals for buyers with a vision. Contact us for further information. Recommends Jean Christophe Viguier, Manager BARNES Luxembourg.
